CATIA PLM Weekly Email 0722 – Recovering the Specification Tree

Attn: CATIAHotline PLM’er,

Have you ever noticed that your Specification Tree can be turned off? Probably you have but just to let you know how to do that you would either select View -> Specifications and uncheck that or you can just select ‘F3’. It is very convenient to turn it off. It gives you more workspace and well if it gets to be to long or to big then it just crowds your model.

The problem with being able to turn on and off and manipulate the Spec Tree is this. Sometimes it just ‘Disappears’. It is there but you can’t see it or you have minimized it and it is out of reach. How do you fix it?

There are a few ways to fix this.

1. Make sure the Spec tree is on by selecting View -> Specifications and ensure that it is Checked On.

2. If it is On try this. Make the Spec Tree active. To do this you will need to turn off the Geometry by selecting View -> Geometry. This will uncheck it. Then select ‘Fit all In’. This should Bring the Spec Tree from the unknown.

or

3. Same as 2 only select the XYZ Reference Axis in the lower right corner. This will under intensify your Geometry making the Spec Tree Active. Then select ‘Fit all In’. This should Bring the Spec Tree from the unknown.
